Here, Morton White presents the first synoptic view of the major philosophical ideas in The Federalist. Using the tools of philosophy and intellectual history, White extracts and examines the interlocking theory of knowledge, doctrine of normative ethics, psychology of motivation, and evenmetaphysics and theology, all of which were used in different degrees by the founding fathers in defense of the Constitution.
Morton White is at Princeton University (Emeritus).
